It depends on what ALL the facts are and how the law interprets them. I do not know all the above, therefore I will wait for the trial to bring forth everything, before making a judgement on his guilt or innocense. Remember, there are laws with which we may not like or agree and that can mean people are legally innocent, even though we are disgusted with what they actually did.

Not guilty in a court of law does not mean innocent. Just means the folks doing the prosecuting or defending or the jury might not have done their job.

According to the media reports Ive seen said that upon Reeves return Oulson asked Reeves if had repoerted him to management. Reeves told him he had.

Wonder what Reeves would've done if someone reported him to management for texting ?

Or it can mean they DID do their job and that is what the law requires, regardless of our personal opinions about the case.

If Reeves was closer to 40 intead of 70 the incident may have resulted in Oulson filingng assault and battery charges against Reeves.

No matter the out come of the case, Mr Reeves did what he felt was necessary at that moment.

That's some price to pay. Possible loss of freedom, and depleting everything you worked hard for and possibly leaving your wife destitute.

Over this nonsense? Really stupid.

At that moment. Well see rational people think first before they let their temper get the best of them.

We all can get angry and lose our cool. But you have to think is this worth it? If I act in the moment what are the long term consequences?

Someone attacks your kid, hits your car in a parking lot, breaks into your house, you take action.

Someone is annoying you by texting in a movie theater that is mostly empty, you change your seat.

Agree 100%...I think Reeves was used to being a guy that people complied with...he had a higher degree of sensitivity to not being obeyed...oh that and he had a gun in his pocket...

Reeves never 'lost his cool" in the subject situation. The only person who "lost their cool" was Oulson.
He launched attack on what he construed was just some old man. He was sadly mistaken.
